I’m opening at 40 Okerstrasse, 12049 Neukolln. And looking to fill the final two spots.
I’ll outline the core concept here as well some important details regarding the use of the space, and if you have further questions or are interested in further talks as well as a viewing, you can contact me at this email address: email@example.com. I’m in the preliminary stages of interviewing artists but am aiming to fill the collective by early February as the studio will open on 01.03.2020. The project will run for one year after which, the lease will be up for review and based on the success of the project will continue on.
“ilali” is the name of the space. Essentially, the concept can be understood through these intersecting dimensions! ilali exists as follows:
On the details of the artists relationship to ilali. The commitments required to join the project are as follows
i. An active presence within the studio.
ii. An offering of sorts in the the form of an event twice a month. I.e talk, workshop, facilitated social hangout. These will be the responsibility of each artists involved and each artist will enjoy total freedom in their offering.
iii. Financial security. Must be able to pay the rental of their share of the studio space (170) euros monthly. We will also require a deposit with the first month. There will be 6/7 artists in the collective.
iv. A willingness to offer a personal investment to help build your own relationship to ilali according to your own vision.
v. An interest in non-hierarchal problem solving, prefigurative politics to ensure unity, equality and inclusion within the project.
vi. Any sales that takes place through ilali is private and therefore managed by you as a private entity. ilali takes no commission. However, a strong sense of support for one another should exist in the assisting of the sale of one another’s work, be that the passing on a contact or conducting the sale itself. The precise mechanism of which will be decided by the collective together.
Regarding the demarcation of the space, i’ll be gathering feedback after your viewing and would devise a system that works based on everyone’s needs. In any system you will have your own keys and 24h access, with the exception of events etc. See the floorpan for a basic idea of the space. The venue used to be a restaurant and is currently being converted! If you would like some photos before a visit just shout however, it's still a work in process .
One final note, i’ll be in studio as one of the artists involved in the project. So, my role is dual here. I believe it’s important to note as this project is very much for artists by artists.
Thanks for reading
